Learn How to Add Dimension to Your Bead Embroidery Projects
When I was in fourth grade, my parents encouraged me to take as many art classes as I wanted to, so I signed up for a watercolor painting class. I found out that I didn’t have much talent for painting with watercolors, but I did discover how much I loved to mix colors and lay them down on paper. Years later when I discovered bead-weaving and then bead embroidery, I started making bead embroidered necklaces and cuff bracelets using some of the same principles of mixing colors that I learned in my watercolor classes all those years ago — but with the added bonus of being able to add layers and layers of beautiful texture with those multi-dimensional seed beads and glass beads that I love so much.
